Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's best category grade came in long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this category. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 58.3691 percent of its residents, which is somewhat less than we anticipated. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it earned an B. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. Our nursing rating is mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also received favorable inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. This grade is also better than the facility's overall score. Inspection scores are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. It does not appear that we have deficiency data for this facility. Without having access to the deficiency data for this nursing home, it ended up being challenging to evaluate it in the inspections category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we analyzed was short-term care, which was a weak spot for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a grade of just D in our short-term care category. In computing our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is frequently a meaningful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
